Dazed, confused and bemused. These are a few terms commonly used by the new player online. And we sure know how he/she feels, don't we?
Let me put it this way -- the new player can easily get dazed, confused and bemused by the onslaught of information and opportunities (legitimate or scams) on the Internet. These same groups of people sad to say are vulnerable to everything new that appears online. Many times they end up as casualties in the Internet gold rush, without ever really making anything close to what we call real money online.
Just today I read a true story of a person who has been online for five years (I repeat five years). He had joined everything under the sun. From MLM to online casinos. And he confesses that after all these years he has just started his own Web site this year to play the big boys game.
This is what he wrote: "In all the preceding history it may have become apparent to some of you already that I did not do what some of you did from day one." Man! What can I say!
When you think about it, can you really blame this guy? Don't forget that along with the massive amount of opportunities you can also be distracted by new free software, new free product downloads, etc. Why just recently I got distracted by an online jukebox. Without realizing it, half the day was gone. I had to slap myself and get back to work :D
Like my grandmother (maybe some of yours, too) always said, "Anything worthwhile achieving always needs your total attention and focus."
What are the key elements that you as an online entrepreneur need to focus on?
